New Training Opportunities Now
Hot topics, hands-on training and more
December 6, 2017 -- Part of our
vision moving into the Safety Campus was to expand our lineup and make hands-on
training more accessible and affordable for our state and region. In November,
we completed our first rescue course on the new training tower. Attendees
provided very positive feedback, making us even more excited to launch our next
set of courses!
New offerings now available through the NDSC include:
Several of these courses include interactive hands-on
components utilizing the NDSC’s training tower. This 26-foot prop allows
students to practice multiple scenarios in a safe and realistic environment. Not
only do the students enjoy the interaction, but it creates a memorable training
experience and increased retention rates.
All course details are available in the links above,
or click here to

course for your company, call us today at (800) 932-8890.
for a Safe and Happy Holiday Season
December 6, 2017 – This is the
time of year families gather, parties are scheduled and travel
spikes. It’s also the time of year emergency rooms across the
country experience an increase in patients with injuries
relating to decorating, fires, poisonings and traffic crashes.
By taking some basic precautions, you can ensure your whole
family remains safe and injury-free throughout this wonderful
Here are a few simple tips to keep you safe
- Safeguard your medications (and theirs).
With family and
friends visiting during the holidays, ask them to keep purses, bags, or coats
that have medications in them up and out of sight when they are in your home.
- Be aware of fall hazards.
If you’re decorating your home
this year, remember to always wear slip-resistant shoes and face the ladder when
climbing. Always maintain three points of contact to the ladder when hanging
your Christmas lights.
- Don’t let a fire ruin your Christmas.
The National Fire
Protection Association says 30 percent of all home fires occur during the months
of December, January and February. Make sure to use non-flammable decorations on
your tree and practice your family fire escape route.
- Be mindful when choosing decorations.
When children are
in the home, be sure to avoid decorations that are sharp or easily breakable.
- Make sure your guests have a safe, and sober, ride home.
All guests need to have a designated driver. Encourage sober driving rather than
impaired driving this holiday.
By following these simple safety tips, you can
ensure your family has a safe and memorable holiday this year.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect
November 15, 2017 – Approximately
217,000 children are treated at emergency rooms for toy-related injuries each
year. New toys can mean endless fun for your children but can also lead to
injury if the toy does not suit the child.
Keep your loved ones safe this holiday season. When
shopping for the perfect toy, consider the child’s age and development, as well
as these simple guidelines:
- Riding toys are the leading cause of toy-related
injuries among children 14 and under. Make sure to include the proper protective
gear along with the toy, such as a helmet.
- Children under age three are at greatest risk for
choking on toys. Pay attention to age recommendations on toys – they are there
for the child’s safety. The smaller the child, the bigger the toy needs to be.
- Do not buy toys with moving parts that could pinch,
cut or trap a child. Any toy with strings or cords over 30cm long can strangle a
child and should be avoided.
- Be aware of any parts that can be broken or detached
from the toy. This could create sharp or rough edges or may create choking
hazards if the parts are smaller than a ping pong ball.

Marlowe Ann Regan was happy as a baby, child, and
young adult. According to her dad, Tom, she was ebullient – she could walk into
a room and liven up the place. She had a great, contagious laugh and a real good
giggle … Tom can still hear her giggle in his head.
Tom and Patti Regan lost Marlowe, their oldest
daughter, in a single-car crash in May 2006. Marlowe was 21 and worked at Sykes
while living in Minot with her boyfriend, Michael. The day she died was her
brother Walt’s 19th birthday. Marlowe was traveling from Minot to Bismarck to
celebrate his birthday with the whole Regan family.
“We were washing Patti’s van in the driveway and we
wondered why Marlowe wasn’t there yet,” Tom remembered. “It was getting kind of
late and all of a sudden we saw a sheriff’s car pull up.” When Chaplain Dan
Sweeney got out, Tom thought Dan was just stopping to say hello since they were
friends. But then he saw a deputy sheriff was with him. “They walked up to us,
and I had an inkling something was wrong. Maybe it was the look on his face. I
